Smoke Control had installed the Stopline Fire Rated Glazing, on several windows, for a property located in Bondi, Sydney.
According to the BCA C3.4, openings in external walls that are within close proximity to adjoining property boundaries require fire protection. This particular Bondi location had 46 windows that were located within 3 metres of the property boundary.
Infinity Constructions, the company behind the Bondi project, had utilised Smoke Control’s Stopline 60 Window System as the ideal fire protection solution. The Fire rated Glazing system uses maximum transparency of the glass, which allows it to be fully integrated alongside of non-fire rated glass.
Stopline Window systems are fully compliant with the Building Code of Australia requirements and have been fire tested to AS1530 Part 4. The Fire rated glazing holds fire ratings of up to 2 hours and also have inerent light transmission, sound reduction and U values.
The Bondi project used clear Class A safety glass, which also had a powder coated paint system on the steel framing of the windows.
The range of fire rated glazing and fire resistant windows, from Smoke Control, can also available in etched, printed and coloured glass.
